Trend Press - Erbil
The Kurdistan Alliance threatened on Saturday to resort to boycotting the parliament session tomorrow if the National Alliance insists on including the budget on the agenda and passing the second reading.
The Kurdish MP Mohammed Osman, "The Kurds are still insisting on passing the budget through consensus, unlike all other issues."
He added that "the understanding of the government with some blocs objecting to the paragraphs of the budget and neglect of the demands of the Kurds confirms the existence of targeting them," noting that "in the case of the National Alliance insist on passing the budget by a majority there is no choice for the Kurds only to boycott the session."
He stressed that "the Kurds can return to Kurdistan and leave the process of consensus if the blocks do not want their presence within a consensual government."
Last week, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi held a meeting with representatives of the Kurdish parties to discuss the controversial points of the budget.
And demanded the Kurdish blocs to install the share of the region in the budget this year 17% instead of 12% sent by the government, but it seems that the government is determined to calculate the share of Kurds according to the population ratios for each province of the province. C
